Spirits of the Past – Legio Gloria January 2022 Release
The only reasonable course of action for Legio Gloria is to start the year in high-Thumos fashion. Before presenting the new garments, I thought to mention the following first:
European history is full of Europeans killing other Europeans. This is no unique or revolutionary insight. I mention this to make a point.
Vlad impaled Transylvanian Saxons and Wallachian nobles. The Teutonic Order mainly fought in the Baltic area – they even occupied the sacred island of Gotland for ten years (1398-1408).
The point of presenting this type of imagery is to inspire the good aspects of these historical figures and factions. Vlad was a hero to his people and fought bravely and successfully against the Ottomans. The Knightly Orders (the Teutonic Knights in this case) embodied ideals that are needed in our age – ideals that I would like the wearer of the garment uphold.
Legio Gloria, as a clothing brand, has no religious affiliations – the only affiliation is to European civilisation. The same is true for me. Any religious imagery that appears in our clothing is as a part of the biocultural theme of that particular design.
Below are the new releases. All of the t-shirts are proudly made in Poland. They are designed to fit an athletic physique (muscular yet normal). They are made with 93% organic cotton and 7% elastane for an optimal fit.
The cookbook is printed in Latvia (as is Dauntless).
Note: be sure to wash the organic cotton t-shirts in no more than 30 degrees Celsius. The same is true for linen and wool. If your washing machine has the option of hand wash – go with that. This is especially important when a t-shirt has a design that is water printed (meaning that the design is in the cloth as opposed to on the cloth). Too high temperatures may harm the colours.
Take care of your clothes, and they will take care of you!
Yggdrasil – T-Shirt
Yggdrasil – the World Tree in Norse mythology – is on proud display. Odin’s ravens, Hugin (thought) and Munin (memory), are also present; one is vanquishing a serpent of deceit, and the other is gazing out into the world.
Vlad Dracula – T-Shirt
Channel the spirit of Vlad Dracula – Defender of Europe – as you strive to become a force of nature. Vlad lived in brutal times and had brutal enemies – brutal measures were required to keep his people safe.
Teutonic Knight – T-Shirt
Embrace the spirit of the Knightly Orders and let it fuel your quest for excellence and chivalry. Brotherhood, dedication to higher ideals, martial prowess, and humility are all things to aspire to in the modern world. Wear this as a reminder to yourself to live in accord with higher ideals.
Dark Enlightenment Handsome T-Shirt
A handsome t-shirt for athletically built gentlemen. A plain black t-shirt with the Legio Gloria emblem embroidered. The garment is black (but looks blueish in this picture).
Old World Feast
I am very proud to present my wife’s cookbook – Old World Feast – it contains nourishing and delicious recipes to fuel athletic and cognitive performance. Traditional recipes from all over Europe. I have had the great pleasure of eating all of the recipes in the book and can vouch for their quality.
All new releases are available at LegioGloria.com
